I thought that the shaping on this sock looked pretty interesting, and I'm really glad I kept it in my Ravelry queue and decided to knit it. The sock conforms pretty much perfectly to my foot. The pattern is long, but not difficult, and I think the result is pretty cool-looking.
I think the pattern looks good in this mostly-solid yarn and I might actually make them again. The only thing I might change is doing plain ribbing on the leg instead of the bark-like pattern as given. However, I do like the the patterning, so I might use it on something else at some point.
Hello, fabulous Ravelry pints.
I bought this yarn at Stitches Midwest last year because I thought knitting with corn fiber would be cool and I liked the color. The yarn knits up pretty well and I like the resulting fabric. I decided to cast on with this yarn so that I'd have some socks to wear during the warmer months. Of course, it hasn't been very warm here lately. Figures.
I love them! I've had those in my queue, too, and I just need to figure out what color I want them to be. Unfortunately, the options in my stash are pretty limitless.
I love those. :) I've thought about knitting them too.. But can't justify buying the pattern right now. And isn't it typical how you knit something season/weather specific, and then everything outside totally changes and you can't use it yet? Bah!Post a Comment
